Mr FISHER (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister for Minerals and Energy. In view of the fact that to achieve decentralisation of industry and population effectively the standardisation of commodity prices is essential, I ask: Will this Government urgently investigate the cost of the freight differential on all sources of energy - liquefied petroleum gas, distillate, petrol and so on - to country industries and people, and take steps to have this cost item equalised with metropolitan counterparts?

Mr CONNOR (CUNNINGHAM, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Minerals and Energy) - When the honourable member for Mallee gives me information on the matters that are of grave concern to him, I will be very pleased to investigate them.
